Tom Cruise, Ethan Hunt, Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation

Trailer Time: Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015) *Oh, This Looks Like Some Fun*

Yesterday we got a short taste of what awaits the IMF team in Mission Impossible 5, fine, fine, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. When did studios start getting number phobia when it comes to sequels? As franchises last longer and longer, it’d be helpful to newbies to know what in which order to watch the films. I digress. This is a full trailer and, released with it, a full plot synopsis of what awaits us on July 31, 2015.

The new flick finds Hunt’s highly effective but destructive Impossible Mission Force (IMF) disbanded by vengeful Washington bureaucrats such as the CIA chief (played by Alec Baldwin). But Hunt pulls his team together (Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames and newcomer Rebecca Ferguson) to battle the shadowy force known as “The Syndicate” and its elusive leader (Sean Harris).

  1. Looks great, but I would go see this without any trailers at all. At this point I’m loyal to the series.

    On another note, are they deliberately antagonizing Disney with this title, or maybe trying to steal some thunder? It’s possible that they settled on the word “rouge” long ago, but they hadn’t announced it, and these decisions are not made in a vacuum. As successful as M:I has been, it’s not in serious competition with the mother of all franchises, and I’m not sure what they’re trying to accomplish.


  2. OK, I looked it up, and apparently they’re just really intent on using this title, and they’ve worked out a deal with Disney. Although this is the same town that brought us the brouhaha over the title of “The Butler.”

    The people running Hollywood have serious egos, and I’m pretty sure a lot of them hate each other.
